Recruitment Assistance for Employers

Here are some key points about recruitment assistance for employers:

WorkSource Business Services:

WorkSource Business Services supports businesses with workforce planning, development, and readiness, offering assistance in finding all levels of talent, compliance needs, and increasing diversity in the workplace. Employers can post opportunities, source talent online at no cost, participate in hiring events, mock interviews, and employer panels, and use one of the 6 WorkSource Center or Affiliate Offices. Additionally, the program allows businesses to hire and train skilled workers and get reimbursed for a portion of the training costs. Other types of work-based learning, upskilling, and retention programs are also available, including customized training programs in partnership with WA State Community and Technical Colleges.

Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Service:

This service helps employers fill workforce needs with trained, educated, and experienced disabled veterans. It provides recruitment assistance based on employers’ specific qualification requirements, and candidates are skilled, committed workers who are prescreened for specific employment opportunities. Employers also gain access to resources to assist with recruitment, retention, and succession planning strategies.

Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN):

EARN offers information and resources to help employers meet employment goals and advance workplace diversity. It also provides access to the Workforce Recruitment Program for College Students with Disabilities (WRP), a free resource that connects private businesses and federal agencies nationwide with qualified job candidates for temporary or permanent positions in a variety of fields. Additionally, a Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is available to eligible employers who extend hiring opportunities to individuals within specific targeted groups .

Jobcentre Plus:

Employers can get recruitment guidance and support from Jobcentre Plus, including assistance with filling vacancies, support for employees or recruits with disabilities or long-term health conditions, and access to additional help with recruitment through local DWP contracted employment partners. Our Skills Force provides information about staff training, funding, and apprenticeships for recruitment in Scotland.

Workforce Recruitment Program (WRP):

The WRP is managed by the U.S. Department of Labor and connects federal and select private-sector employers nationwide with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities eager to demonstrate their skills and abilities in the workplace through internships and permanent jobs. The program serves as a first step to a long-term federal career for many individuals.

These resources and programs provide valuable support to employers in recruiting and hiring qualified individuals, including those with disabilities, and offer various incentives and assistance to help businesses meet their workforce needs.
